Praying for a Safe Birth
The Orthodox Young Adult group here in Portland gathered together last night for our regular time of spiritual discussion, potluck dinner and prayer.
We typically close the evening with Small Compline but because of my wife's labor difficulties, Fr. Theodore thought it would be appropriate if we all chanted the Supplicatory Canon to the Most Holy Theotokos (also known as The Paraclesis service) instead.
Truly it was a blessing to ask the intercessions of our Mother for a mother!
Carrie woke up this morning with more strong and steady contractions but so far there is no news to report. More updates forthcoming.
Update: We had scheduled a biophysical profile for Thursday, but Carrie just found out she was able to get an appointment for early this evening.
